Miguel Chavez is 12 years old, and his dearest wish is to go to the Sangre de Cristo Mountains for the summer with the sheep and the men of the sheep ranch. One of the things he learns in the course of this book is to be careful what he wishes for...

I hate it that the covers of this book are falling apart. The pages are still sound, and I love the terrific Jean Charlot illustrations. I don't know how long it will last, but I can't resist labeling and releasing this book even though it's fragile.

New Mexico is the 47th state: the Land of Enchantment. I've been to Carlsbad Caverns twice and hope to go again someday. I'd also love to make it to the balloon fiesta - I've never been up in a hot air balloon but it's on my list of things to do. :)
